The national award-winning entertainment journalist is also a successful screenwriter and protege of UCLA guru Richard Walter. He's represented by Leslie Kallen Management. Faring well in competitions, he has sold two screenplays, both comedies. His no-budget feature film, "Death and Taxis" put him IMDB. He also wrote and produced a documentary about Ravinia, hosted by Bill Kurtis. He was nominated for two 2012 Emmy Awards for creating television commercials. Several new comedy projects are read for film and TV.
“Witty and easygoing is a rare combination, but Nick Pullia is that rare writer who can produce excellent work while remaining open to new ideas and collaboration. I enjoyed his work, but I also enjoyed working with him. I wish him continued success.”
Jake Perron, Film development executive
“Nick Pullia is a first rate writer. He knows how to create characters worth caring about and to construct engaging stories. He also writes upbeat, capable dialogue that is fun to listen to all by itself but, instead of being all by itself, successfully advances the story. He is also an affirmative, extraordinarily intelligent fellow who knows how to consider advice and exploit it effectively in the service of powerful communication. He is a joy to work with, a standout among standouts. He has my highest endorsement.”
Richard Walter, Screenwriting professor, UCLA
“There are men of action and men of words. Nick Pullia is both, which is an awesome combination. What's more, his words are usually both insightful and hilarious, which makes him a joy to be around, collaborate with, and work alongside. I struggled with the nature of our relationship when I had to choose "Basis of recommendation" for this write-up because Nick is not easily defined - in a good way. Technically, Ravinia is our client and Nick is the supervising authority figure. However, the reality is that he is a true creative collaborator and a partner in crime (figuratively speaking, of course). What I love about working with him (in addition to having a great first name, albeit one that is misspelled) is that he brings so much more to the table than just a "get it done" attitude; he is a "get it done RIGHT" kind of guy.
Typically, in the creative world, "getting it done right" means thinking outside the box. There is no box that can hold Nick Pullia. While he is completely fiscally responsible and cognoscente of the reality of the scope of a project, he never lets "reality" hamper "creativity." The resulting end product is something that is both financially sound and creatively impressive. We do good work on our own . . . but that work is even better when it's done with Nick.” July 13, 2011

“Nick was instrumental in conceiving and helping us to produce our new film, "A Good Man," about acclaimed choreographer Bill T. Jones (the piece we document in our film was commissioned by Ravinia Festival). Nick was intimately involved in the production and always had great ideas along the way. Hats off to you Nick as we take the film out to the world.” July 4, 2011
